Next week in Anaheim brings Star Wars Celebration, a gathering that celebrates everyone’s favorite saga from a galaxy far, far away. And with the newest film debuting in December, this year’s Celebration is about to get crazy.
We already knew that the second trailer would debut at the Celebration. But now according to Collider, the first poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will also make its debut.
The original trilogy teaser posters were great but outside of the original Epsiode I teaser poster the rest of the Prequel Trilogy teaser posters were all terrible. I’m holding out hope we’ll end up with something truly Iconic for The Force Awakens.
You’ll recall the fine folks at Making Star Wars were previously the only media outlet to offer a correct breakdown for the original teaser trailer back in November (a couple less informed sites offered incorrect breakdowns). As expected, MSW have posted a breakdown of what we can expect to see in the new trailer:
- The teaser runs at about one minute and fifty seconds, just under two minutes.
- Han, Leia, Artoo and Threepio.
- A crashed Star Destroyer on the sand planet.
- We do see Yavin in the teaser.
- We see a shot of Finn with a blue lightsaber.
- There is a shot of Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), the chrome Stormtrooper, very briefly.
- We do see Kylo Ren’s helmeted face.
- We see Poe Dameron shoot down a TIE fighter.
- A shot of Finn and Poe walking past one another at the base.
- Rey is in a few shots, looking at TIEs overhead.
- There is a shot of Poe Dameron, Artoo-Detoo, See-Threepio, and a CGI character (Rose).
- BB-8 socketed in the back of an X-wing.
- Kylo Ren’s Imperial shuttle flies by with TIE escorts to the Star Destroyer (it is the one MakingStarWars.net wrote about).
- Star Destroyer(s).
- The Falcon.
- X-wing fighters flying in a V-shape formation.
- Darth Vader’s helmet sitting on a podium.
- No Serkis.
- No Luke.
Now, while there are usually attempts to keep things like this as “Convention Exclusive,” keeping a total lock on leaks is impossible. I’m sure that come Thursday, Disney and LucasFilm will be hounding the internet with their lawyers and sending a virtual ton of cease-and-desist orders as people put the trailer online if isn’t released for the masses at the same time.
Eventually we’ll get to see official images, but on Disney’s terms. Until then, the world will be glued to their computers next Thursday, waiting to catch a glimpse of what the future brings for Star Wars.
